Richard Croker, 36, was taken to VCU Medical Center with burns over 65 percent of his body, authorities said. He was listed in stable condition this morning.
Richmond police said officers were on patrol just before 9 p.m. Saturday when they saw a large ball of fire and explosion at a Dominion substation in the 4300 block of Hull Street Road.
When they pulled up to the fenced-in substation, they found Croker inside with his clothes on fire. Croker was rushed to the University Medical Center burn unit.
Police said Croker had climbed over the fence and was trying to steal copper wiring.
Police have obtained warrants charging Croker with trespassing, felony destruction of property and larceny.
